Early fall

Ashland had a great sky yesterday. The autumn colors are just beginning. No snow on Mt. Ashland yet, and the forecast shows 80s for the next couple weeks so no snow on Mount A in the near future.

The pink flowers in my front yard are several days gone now. These white ones in the backyard seem to have a longer life span, although many have fallen this week. I took this photo a week ago. As Ashland’s cherry blossom season ends, Japan’s is just beginning.

I rather like the sun stars my Nikkor 20mm f/1.8g AF-S lens produces at f/16.

April in Ashland

Spring and Autumn are interesting seasons in Ashland. You never know if it will be 30 degrees or 75 degrees. Sometimes in April things get mixed up and the green of Spring collides with the white of Winter.

Remember what early June looks like?

This field on East Main Street in Ashland isn’t much to took at this time of year. However, in May and early June the grass grows long so someone cuts a path through it for the kids walking to school at Willow Wind.

Ashland, Oregon panorama

Last week the mountains around Ashland were dusted with snow. Some funky clouds rolled in, and then some blue sky poked through. I decided to head up to the roof to see how much of the detail I could capture.

I had my Nikkor 70-300mm lens on my Nikon D600. At 70mm I turned the camera vertical, and took a series of 8 photos at 1/800, f/10, ISO-200. I then photomerged them together for the above result. If you have a big screen, click on the image once or twice for the larger view. You can see lots of detail and landmarks on the biggest version including (from the left) Mountain Meadows, Grizzly Peak, and Pompadour Bluff.

It’s not everyday that you get the chance to stand on the roof of a two-story, Victorian Italianate house built in 1883 near downtown Ashland. When that opportunity affords itself on a day (near the end of autumn) when half the town is getting rained on and the other half is under a bright blue sky you count yourself lucky. Today’s photo is about a 300 degree panorama I photomerged together. For loads more details click on the above image. Depending on your browser you may want to click on it again for even more detail. See if you can find the Ashland Springs Hotel, Wagner Butte, the Historic Ashland Armory, and Grizzly Peak. If you look really closely you can also see Puck’s Donuts, the Oregon Shakespeare Festival, Modern Barber Shop, and the Ashland Wine Cellar.
